Building a new house can be trying at the best of times. It is the most expensive personal feat anyone can do. I am faced with in the closing hours of 70% completion in hearing the cash drawer open waiting for my cheque again.
SO high efficiency is so detailed in a building contract.
My builders contractor is a nice guy done good duct work etc so far.
Now I find my contract provides a HRV and 90 achiever High efficiency Ruud furnace but not their 2 stage or modulating models upgrades.
I assume rules of forums are not to ask nor discuss prices, but now i have to make a decsion on wether to spend more then I have already over spent on budget for all the design crap ( better lights, floors granite etc) I havent seen his price jumps yet but preparing for them next week.
How much can I trust that there are real savings in a 3200 sq ft very open concept home in Toronto area of Canada from these? Is it just comfort I get or can I assume 5 year pay back or less of the added cost? I got the technical differneces I dont need those explained. I have brochures but would rather have someone sell me that isnt getting my money on the decision in front of me.
Any and all help appreciated, I guess from the Ruud Rheem guys obviously in this forum. Thanks in advance.
